According to police, Ashley Jackson, 21, and her mother, Toni Duncan, 49, were shopping Saturday at a Walmart in Elyria, southwest of , when they became angry after a customer service employee did not assist them to their satisfaction in reloading a gift card and sending a money order.
Mary Curney, a shopper who was in the photo department at the time of the alleged altercation, told Cleveland's Fox 8 News she witnessed the incident.
"He was only trying to check her receipt, and she got mad," Curney told the news station. "[The door greeter] was stunned. He didn't really know what to do. He was like shaken up and everything."
According to the police report provided to AOL News, the mother-daughter duo yelled obscenities at the man, calling him a "f-----g cracker." Jackson also allegedly yelled at the greeter, "If you don't let go of that receipt, I'm going to punch you in the face!"
According to police, Jackson then ran over to the customer service desk, yelled obscenities at a female employee and "stated ... that when she tells her boyfriend about the door greeter, he won't be alive."
Police said Jackson then yelled three times, "I'm going to blow up Walmart," before the women left the store.
Meanwhile, Jackson and Duncan were in the parking lot with two small children. When questioned by police, Duncan allegedly said, "Yeah, I choked him!" Police say she also asked to press charges against several Walmart employees whom she felt had harassed her.
Police said that when asked if she had threatened to blow up the store, Jackson yelled, "Yeah, I did. I did, so there!"
Duncan was charged with assault, and Jackson was charged with aggravated menacing and inducing panic. Both women are scheduled to appear Wednesday in Elyria Municipal Court.
